SARASOTA, Fla. -- The "Two minutes with ..." spring series continues with pitcher Ubaldo Jimenez, who signed a four-year, $52 million contract this spring that marked the longest deal in Orioles history for a free-agent pitcher. The 30-year-old right-hander has also pitched for the Colorado Rockies and Cleveland Indians.
Favorite food: The Dominican flag: rice, chicken and beans.
Favorite movie: For Love of the Game.
Special talent: I can dance. I learned in my neighborhood. Everybody dances. My favorite is bachata, which is a Dominican kind of dance.
If I wasn't a baseball player I'd be: A doctor (Jimenez's sister is currently in her residency) or in the Air Force.
Favorite offseason place: Home to the Dominican.
Prized possession: I have a picture of my 9-year-old niece, Crisley, that I always put up in my locker. That and the Dominican flag go everywhere with me.
